Last week, I predicted 4 results right with just one perfect score. This weekend we are back to a full Premier League programme. Man City face a difficult trip to Everton as they try to cut the gap with United and there is another relegation six-pointer at Villa Park.
Everton vs Man City (Sat 1245)
Everton always prove tough opposition for City. They took a point from the Etihad earlier this season and the Toffees won this fixture last season 1-0. City need to remain focused or the 12 point gap with United will become larger. City are in good form and I reckon they will snatch what will be a close game.
Aston Villa vs QPR (Sat 1500)
Both teams enjoyed big wins last week in their fight against relegation. This game is the chance for one of these teams to gain a massive 3 points. However, both sides seem evenly matched and if there is to be a winner, Benteke is the most likely to do it. However, I am going for a draw.
Southampton vs Liverpool (Sat 1500)
Liverpool are in great form and the confidence is even higher after last week’s 3-2 win over Spurs. Southampton although playing good football, have only won once under Mauricio Pochettino. With top scorer Luis Suarez probably the best striker in the Prem right now, Liverpool should prove too much for Southampton
Stoke vs West Brom (Sat 1500)
Stoke won the reverse of this fixture in December, but with their recent form WBA have a chance. One positive for the Potters is that Jon Walters finally scored last week having missed his previous two penalties. Stoke will have to deal with Romelu Lukaku who has scored four goals in his last 3 games. Despite current form, I’m going for a Stoke form.
Swansea vs Arsenal (Sat 1500)
Despite winning 2-0 in Munich, Arsenal were knocked out of the Champions League and there will be no trophy again this year. The Gunners need to regroup now and focus on 4th place. Swansea however have enjoyed the past few weeks as they clinched their fist ever major silverware. Swansea have not lost at home in the League since December 8 and with morale in the Arsenal camp low, it’s a Swansea victory
